Revolution. A Reader

Almost to the day 100 years ago, the strike of factory workers in St Petersburg led to one of the biggest revolutions in history: The Russian Revolution of 1917 marked the end of czardom and eventually led to the formation of the UdSSR five years later. Tracing urban structures, bus stops in particular CHRISTOPHER HERWIG draws a picture of the urban physiognomy of sowjet Russia – while FLANEUR’s last issue walks down Moscow’s Boulevard Ring. The ‘fragments of a street’ uncovers the multiple layers, stories and histories of Moscow’s most prominent street structure, visible and invisible. A lot has happened since 1917 and the concept of ‘revolution’ might seem outdated, idealistic or even an empty notion. REVOLUTION. A READER takes a spin on the word, reviving it with new meaning. If we look closer, micro-revolutions happen not only in the streets, but in conversation and our relation to others, everywhere, everyday.

Text in German or English
39,80 Euro

Full House – Diez Office has been published as part of the exhibition at Museum für Angewandte Kunst Köln under the same title. Full House does not only show the experiemental and passionate works of German designer Stefan Diez, it also documents unfinished, not realized or failed projects. The thought- and material processes behind Diez’ design become visible, almost touchable, through photographs, sketches and commentary – illuminating the reasons of why Diez might be one of Germany’s most exciting industrial designers. And what would a design publication be without a beautiful layout? The clarity, simplicity yet savvyness of Diez’ designs are perfectly mirrored in each of the over 300 pages. The corresponding essays, interviews and index of Diez’ works makes “Full House” more than an ordinary catalogue. Full House – Diez Office is available in English and German.

Arthur Lubow: Diane Arbus. Portrait of a Photographer

Arthur Lubow: Diane Arbus. Portrait of a Photographer
Text in English
40,00 Euro

On this day in 1923 one of the most powerful and influential American artists of the 20th century was born: photographer Diane Arbus, known through her portrayal of marginalized people – dwarfs, giants, transgender people. In her work, Arbus would spent weeks, sometimes years to get to know her subjects. The 700 page biography “Diane Arbus. Portrait of a Photographer” by New York Times author Arthur Lubow takes on the same sensitivity and curiosity to one of the most complex and fascinating women artists in 20th century photography. Through interviews with friends and colleagues and previously unknown letters, Lubow traces Arbus’ journey from a successfull New York fashion photographer to the unique and hugely influential artist she is seen as today. But “Portrait of a Photographer” is not only a magnificent biography – it is also an important contribution to sweeping away the persistent clichés surrounding Arbus’ work and life. Lubow’s book portraits Diane Arbus not as a tortured soul or privileged exploiter, but as the complex, genious and contradictory woman and artist she was.

There is a drum solo in the 1969 song “Amen, Brother” by “The Winston’s” and even if you’ve never heard of the band before – you’ve probably heard the drum solo over a hundred times already. With over 2000 samples, it is by far the most sampled track in the history of music – and we couldn’t imagine Hip Hop or Drum’n'Bass without it. The Winston’s themselves never claimed any royalties and never received any compensation for the use of their song – something almost completely unimaginable in our decade of copyright, copyleft, infringement and lawsuits. In our digital age though, copyright becomes a tough decision between oldschool law and digital technology. The Art Culture Magazine ELEPHANT enquires into this gap in their latest issue “Copyright and its Discontents”. Copyright or wrong? With interviews, artist’s essays, collages and photo editorials by and with Ian Davis, David Evans, Joanna L. Creswell, Ruth van Beek, Neo Rauch, Henrik Vibskov and many many more, this 200 page issue is definitely something you might want to copy off, cut and paste and quote regularly. But please make sure to get the real deal; a real, beautifully designed paper magazine, not a poorly scanned pdf.

Jacobin #24
Text in English
13,00 Euro

“Reason in Revolt” – What started out as a translation error of the marxist anthem “Die Internationale” has since become the paradigm for progressive left theory – and the slogan of the New York based magazine JACOBIN. With democratic and left parties in disaray over the rise of fascism and conservatism, JACOBIN shines a bright (and consistent) light on left and socialist issues in the United States. Their winter issue is called “Journey to the Dark side”, and no, JACOBIN has not given up on their agenda. This issue is rather a journey into the inconvenient and sometimes troubling truths the left has to face in order to make a difference. With essays such as “Being Anti-Trump isn’t enough”, “How Pepe turned brown” or an insight into the failures and shortcomings of the Democratic Party, JACOBIN is presenting valuable reading material for the hard times to come. At the heart of it lies the conviction “We must organize around a positive, forward-looking program for real change – a program that gives people something to fight for, not just something to fight against.”. And if Donald Trump’s America is going to be the new Versailles, JACOBIN will be ready for the revolution.

“Wo wird wem was und wie zu sehen gegeben , oder wo wird wem was und wie unsichtbar gemacht?”
Ästhetik der Zensur ist eine kleine, gelbe Publikation, die sich mit den ästhetischen Auswirkungen und Manifestationen der Zensur auseinandersetzt. Auch in der Gestaltung des Buches schlägt sich die detailverliebte Beschäftigung mit dem Sujét nieder, Teile des Texts scheinen durch verschiedenes Bild- und Textmaterial zum Teil überlagert, erst auf den zweiten Blick wird deutlich, dass der Textfluss darum nicht unterbrochen ist und der Leserin nichts verborgen bleibt. Die verschiedenen Methoden bewusster, professioneller und improvisierter Zensur als Kontrolle über Bilder werden in drei Kapiteln mit vielversprechenden Passagen wie ‚Das mediale Hymen und die Frage nach der Befreiung aus dem phallischen Repräsentationssystem‘ behandelt.

Raymond Roussel – Eindrücke aus Afrika
Text auf Deutsch
35,00 Euro

“Ich bin viel gereist. Aus all diesen Reisen habe ich nie etwas für meine Bücher geschöpft. Mir schien, das verdiente, mitgeteilt zu werden, beweist es doch, daß bei mir die Einbildungskraft alles ist.“
Wer so von sich spricht und dennoch einen Roman über den Schiffbruch eines französischen Überseedampfers mit dem Titel „Eindrücke aus Afrika“ schreibt, gehört entweder zu den Großen oder den Größenwahnsinnigen der Weltliteratur. Der französische Schriftsteller, Schachexperte und Surrealist Raymond Roussel ist wohl beides gewesen – „Eindrücke aus Afrika“ spiegelt seine temperamentvolle Lebensgeschichte sinnbildlich wieder: 1910 in Paris erschienen, war ‚Impressions d’Afrique‘ ein großartiger Flop, inspirierte jedoch Marcel Duchamp Jahre später zur Entwicklung seines ersten Ready-mades. Roussel (1877-1933) war zeitlebens Grenzgänger, selbst seine enthusiastischsten Fans (zu denen u.a. Dalí und Paul Eluard zählten) blieben auf sicherer Distanz. Nichtsdestotrotz waren und sind Roussels Schriften Inspiration und Faszination für so klingende Namen Man Ray, Jean Cocteau oder in neuerer Zeit Jim Jarmusch und Sigmar Polke – umso notwendiger, dass zahlreiche Manuskripte und verschollen geglaubte Aufzeichnungen Roussels langsam aus dem Dornröschenschlaf erwachen, bearbeitet, wiederaufgelegt oder neu übersetzt werden.
Ende 2016 nahm sich darum das Schweizer Verlagshaus Edizioni Peripherie der Neuübersetzung von „Rückkehr nach Afrika“ an: Unter Rückgriff auf frühere Arbeiten und Manuskripte Roussels wurde das Monumentalwerk neu aufgelegt – versehen mit teils erstmals publizierten Dokumenten und einem ausführlichen Nachwort des Herausgebers Stefan Zweifel. So ist ein Buch entstanden, das sich nicht nur inhaltlich, sondern auch – ganz nach Schweizer Art – gestalterisch sehen lassen kann. “Eindrücke aus Afrika” ist versehen mit 14 Radierungen des Schweizer Künstlers Markus Raetz.

Inside you will find a stunning editorial shot by Timothy Schaumburg featuring predominantly motocross (inspired) garb – staged with a high-fashion approach. Other contributions include a piece about Energy Drinks by K-Hole’s Emily Segal, some darn good writing on the history of Bike Life by Chris Elvidge and an exploration of the relation between man and motorbike in contemporary art by Ed Paginton.

F.R.David #13 – Inverted Commas
Text in English
10,00 Euro

“Words, don’t come easy” F.R. David sang in 1981. While the French singer was back then only concerned with finding “a way to make you see I Love You”, the bookjournal that took its name from David has a more complex pretension. The biannual journal F.R.David is concerned with the organisation of reading and writing in contemporary art practice. Their issues, almost book-like, assemble commissioned essays and reprinted texts, making it hard to distinguish between quote, reference and ‘original’. Speaking of quotations, their latest issue is called “Inverted Commas”, compiling texts and text-images by Harun Farocki, Thomas Metzinger, Lucy Lippard and many more. “Inverted Commas” – as a lot of F.R.David’s other issues – looks, feels and reads like a publication in its own right, an artwork somehow, creating its own narrative through assembling fragments, screenshots, pictures or sketches into a 250 page book. “Inverted Commas” is published in cooperation with KW Institute for Contemporary Art.

Clay: Contemporary Ceramic Artisans

Clay: Contemporary Ceramic Artisans
Text in English
30,00 Euro

Pottery and ceramics is enjoying a market renaissance, as part of an urge of ‚slow‘ or more ‚authentic’ living within the 21st century landscape. Objects made by hand, the imperfect, the unique is what our generation is craving for. The hand crafted ceramic bowl, the clay teapot is the perfect embodiment and realization of this wish. But while our perception of pottery products might be limited to a very basal mode of ‚comforting‘ ourselves, the production of pottery, the combinations of inspiration, materials and methodology are infinite.

Amber Creswell Bell, Australian arts and design writer, took on the task of exploring this diversity of ceramic’s favourite material: clay. Her book portraits over 50 studio potters from around the world, telling their professional stories, their relationship to the material and technique and offering a look behind the scenes. Clay starts off with a short but very informative foreword, in which the relationship between material and contemporary culture – between ‘slow living’ and instagram-ready lifestyle – is explained. But the book does not intend to be an academic ‘best of’ nor a ‘technical exploration’. In its own words, it intends to be “a somewhat subjective curation aiming to shine light on diverse cross-section of styles, experiences, geography and personality of the artists” working with clay. This subjectiveness, this immediacy is what makes Clay a special publication. The different perceptions, thoughts and approaches to the material are not only a fascinating read but are also captured in over 231 photographs. And in case you were wondering what’s so risky about Raku or why ‘biscuit firing’ has nothing to do with cookies – Clay comes with a handy glossary of pottery vocabulary, to turn even the most stubborn ceramics ignorant into a clay connoisseur.

Migrant Journal #1

Migrant Journal #1
Text in English
20,00 Euro

There is that type of publication that seems to be timeless and contemporary at the same time, blurring the lines between journal and book. Asking the relevant questions without feeding into the easy consumption of contemporary ‚trends‘, ‚turns‘, ‚shifts‘ or so called paradigms is a tough task and not easy to manage. Especially when focussing on the topic of ‚migration‘ which has led to and has been used by a heated but equally important prevailing debate.

- What will it talk about?
- Migration.
- You mean the migrant crisis?
- That and other things. Migration is everywhere, it’s time we realise it again. It’s time writers, spatial thinkers and designers, artists, researchers of all kinds get together to re-think the concept of migration.

Migrant Journal’s first (and crowd-funded) issue Across Country starts with this imaginary conversation, which, in light of recent world politics – far-right extremism and globalization scepticism – seems to be more relevant than ever. Why do we perceive migration as crisis? Don’t we migrate as well when we move from one place to another? Isn’t our world dependent on movement, circulation and exchange? Migrant Journal wants to change our view, perception of and knowledge about migration, „exploring the circulation of people, goods, information, even fauna and flora around the world and the transformative impact they have on contemporary life.“ Their first of a 6-issue publication starts with the ‚rural space‘, the countryside as an important spatial setting and parameter for migration – disclosing its difficulties as well as possibilities. From the invisible borders of the Alps and the Mediterranean Sea to the landscape migration of sediments – from Kent’s artificial countryside to the remnants of rivers in Iran – from the impact of Japan’s deathliest earthquake to American technology at the French countryside – from an interview with the curators of Oslo Triennale to a study on rural sociology by urbanist and philosopher Henri Lefebvre -
Migrant Journal’s first issue accomplishes what it has been aspiring to. In bringing together excellent and varied content by writers, designers, artists, researchers and photographers, ‚Across country‘ is an important contribution “to the rethinking and re-appropriation of migration.”

With contributions by: Martha Pskowski, Folder, Brett Milligan, Elisabeth Real, Christoph Miler, Justinien Tribillon, After Belonging Agency, Catarina de Almeida Brito, Dimitrios Bormpoudakis, Giuditta Vendrame, Julián Castro, Daniela Sanjinés, David Kostenwein, Henri Lefebrve, Hefin Jones, Pippo Ciorra.

It’s been worth the wait! Purple Fashion Magazine is back with their almost 500 page atlas of fashion, art, photography, essays and interviews, – a mesmerizing visual journey into everything that is exciting, exceptional and essential in the fashion world (in its broadest and most inclusive sense). Purple’s outstanding capability to broaden and explore fashion’s dimensions and horizons into the world of art and theory proves itself again in this spring/summer issue:
Purple magazine #27 looks at the relationship between sex and fashion, critically, curiously and emphatically. In the words of Olivier Zahm, editor-in-chief: „Fashion design today is the transgression of the sexual transgression and is truly helping people to express their sexual identity with confidence and originality. This is a captivating but subtle and even delicate evolution – especially among young designers and generations – as the fashion world adapts to a new erotic landscape outside of the familiar clichés and conventions.“

Including interviews with 20th Century Women director Mike Mills, artists Julio Le Parc and Vanessa Beecroft, fashion and furniture with Rick Owens, a conversation between photographer William Eggleston and Glenn O’Brien, portfolios by Ryan McGinley and John Currin, a portrait of the owner of Berlin’s legendary Paris Bar, a photographic homage to Chris Marker by Ed Templeton, an interview with contemporary French philosopher Tristan Garcia … and a special edition Purple Book by Carsten Höller.

Signature Strengths is a publication that results from of a research program of the St. Lucas School of Arts. This slick beauty is essentially a presentation and part reproduction of the so called no-frills books. The Jove publications where practically non-designed, anonymously authored genre-paperbacks. The four genres Western, Mystery, Sci-Fi and Romance (‚Complete with Everything: A kiss, a promise, a misunderstanding, another kiss, a happy ending‘) where pretty much all one needed to pass the time in pre-internet, smart phone-less America. Perhaps their dubious tagline ‚After you’ve read one, you won’t mind the others.‘ is to blame for the failure of the project then… If you still feel attracted by the blunt, almost comedic marketing strategy they employed and feel like tapping into the fabulously generic content of some of the very finest no-frills – this will surely be a treat for you!

#43 of Harvard Design – titled Shelf Life – is ‘an investigation of contents, containers and systems of storage that organize our world’.

You might not find answers in this magazine, but rather marvelous reports and descriptions of different systems of storage, like an essay on the history of the pre-ikea bookshelf, the huge storage facilities of Ricola and Walmart as well as a great conversational interview on food-preservation in Soviet Russia.
And it looks so great you’ll want to store it in your Billy-shelf forever…

Various Titles

As we celebrate 30 years of transmediale in Berlin it’s quite obvious the world is spinning faster and faster. This year’s transmediale title ‘ever elusive’ picks up on those subtle feelings of discomfort with the dizzying unknown as well as questioning new developments of technology and art about their transformative potential. If you’d like to emerse in a rather ’non-elusive’ (but nevertheless equally informing) media format – the book (yes, it does still exist) – we recommend our selection of the MIT Press Essential Knowledge Series. With titles such as ‚Machine Learning‘, ‚Robots‘, ‚Paradox‘ or ‚Metadata‘, this series is trying to undercut the present era of instant information gratification and superficial description. It takes into account the fact that we might feel overwhelmed by today’s more and more complex systems of knowledge and technology. Thus, each of their small pocket size volumes starts with the fundamentals, considering we might all be nonspecialists, newcomers to our own conditions. And maybe, slowly, the ‘ever elusive’ won’t feel so slippery anymore.
